About Miri

As an undergraduate student at Rice University, I tutored middle and high school students for 2 years with Bellaire Tutors and Elite Private Tutors in various subjects including English, history, algebra, geometry, pre-calculus, SAT, SAT subject tests, biology and chemistry. I also online tutored one student in honors algebra. Additionally, I was a Japanese tutor at Rice for 2 years and speak both Chinese and Japanese fluently as my parents are Chinese and I lived in Japan for 8 years. I really enjoy helping students work through homework, understanding concepts and teaching them tricks and methods to solving problems and building their test taking skills. I may one day pursue a career in teaching as I love helping students of all ages and find joy in helping them grow.

I got a 800 in SAT math and both SAT math I and II subject tests.

I lived in Japan for 8 years and attended elementary school there. I earned full scores on both SAT Japanese subject test and AP Japanese without taking any classes for them. I kept up with my Japanese education by attending Japanese School of Dallas until the middle of high school and also took Advanced Japanese at Rice University. I also took Advanced Japanese II at Ritsumeikan in summer 2012.

I earned 760 on my SAT reading and know test taking skills for both SAT reading and general critical reading exams.

I was a great student in elementary school and tutored my young sister, our neighbors and my parents' friends children when they were in elementary and middle schools in various subjects.

I am currently an investment banking analyst at Wells Fargo Securities and learned accounting and finance on my own via online and textbook tools as Rice did not offer business and finance majors for undergraduate students.

I am very patient and flexible with my schedule as long as they are on the weekends and some weekday nights. I am happy to try various methods to make my relationship with my students work.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chinese

My parents are of Chinese descent and we regularly speak Mandarin at home. I also attended school in China during the summer when I lived in Japan for 8 years. I took Accelerated Intermediate and Accelerated Advanced Chinese at Rice University and received As as well as the Center for the Study of Languages Certificate of Proficiency in Chinese. I also took the ACTFL Oral and Writing Proficiency Interview in Chinese in 2013 and received Advanced Mid and Advanced Low, respectively. I also took the AP Chinese and SAT Chinese Subject Test without taking Chinese in high school and earned full scores.

Sociology

I was a sociology major at Rice University and took several advanced courses including Sociology of the Family, Multiracial America, Sociology of Gender, Deviance and Popular Culture, Social Theory, Research Methods, Social Statistics and did two semesters of my own research in a topic of my choice. I received an A in every class except for Social Theory, in which I earned a B.
